All Souls, Take Courage

At the end of October, several religious celebrations invite us to reflect on relationships with others.

Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday honoring departed loved ones. In Christian tradition, All Saints Day honors church mothers and fathers such as Saint Patrick. All Souls Day honors “regular” folks. The “Souls” within Unitarian Universalism include our ancestors in this free religion and in this congregation.

For this service, bring photos and other memorabilia of “Souls” to honor during the ceremony of Joys and Concerns.

Don’t forget the Halloween parade, for persons of all ages, at the end of the service!
